Will The Navy’s Capt. Owen Honors Be Ousted For His Homophobic Anal Probe Videos?

Captain Owen P. Honors Jr., who commanded the USS Enterprise (the first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier) during missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, thought it’d be useful to train his Navy sailors using videos showing women showering together. And men dressed up in drag. And featuring him throwing “fag” all over theh place. “Over the years I’ve gotten several complaints about inappropriate material during these videos,” says Honors in the introduction. So “fags” should “hug themselves for the next twenty minutes.” The videos, made in 2006 and 2007, were broadcast to the ship’s 6,000 sailors. The Virginian-Pilot notes the videos were shot and edited on the Enterprise, using government equipment. And now the Navy says it’s very interested in knowing how all this happened, launching an investigation into Honors’ little movie screenings.

When the videos were made, Honors was the ship’s executive officer (or XO) and second-in-command. Now he — with his frequently appearing blurred-out penis “little XO — is now running the ship.

In the videos, Honors indicates that he’s trying to entertain the crew. They were shown roughly once a week on closed-circuit shipwide television, according to a handful of sailors who were assigned to the Enterprise at the time. The sailors requested anonymity for fear of retribution. One of them said he mailed a complaint about the videos to the Navy Inspector General this week. Others said crew members who raised concerns aboard the ship in 2006 and 2007 were brushed off. The videos were part of what Honors, 49, called “XO Movie Night.” “They were the XO’s project,” said one former Enterprise sailor, a ship video-grapher who on one occasion was asked to help in the filming. “He was the one coming up with scripts and the jokes. He was the one planning it.”

The Enterprise, the world’s first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, is set to deploy overseas this month. The videos raise serious questions about Honors’ judgment, especially while the carrier is under way, said another sailor, an officer aboard the Enterprise who was also there when the videos were being shown. “When the ship pulls away from that pier, he’s it,” the officer said. “To me, that’s scary.” It’s unclear why the videos recently resurfaced, although one sailor who spoke to the newspaper said they remain on at least one shipboard computer.

Honors is a native of Syracuse, N.Y., and graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1983. He went on to fly the F-14 Tomcat and work as a test pilot before serving as XO on the Enterprise from July 2005 to September 2007. Honors did not respond to requests for comment. Neither did the Enterprise’s then-commanding officer, Larry Rice, who was later promoted to the rank of the rear admiral and now works at the Norfolk-based U.S. Joint Forces Command.

Why are the videos, which also include scenes of a sailor being anally probed, such a big deal? Because when the ship sets off with thousands of sailors aboard, this homophobe is the one setting the tone of deployment, and he has the final say of all men and women aboard the carrier. And with the inevitable full repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, gay and lesbian soldiers will finally be able to legally identify as such on the job, and these videos send the message they are better off remaining the closet. Which might make sense anyhow: While soldiers will no longer be able to be discharged for being gay, there is still no anti-discrimination policy in the military. Capt. Honors just made clear he has no respect for gay and lesbian servicemembers, and cannot effectively lead them in wartime on par with heterosexual sailors.

The Navy says in a statement “production of videos, like the ones produced four to five years ago on USS Enterprise and now being written about in the Virginian-Pilot, were not acceptable then and are still not acceptable in today’s Navy. The Navy does not endorse or condone these kinds of actions.” That comes after the Navy released a statement saying the videos were “not created with the intent to offend anyone. The videos were intended to be humorous skits focusing the crew’s attention on specific issues such as port visits, traffic safety, water conservation, ship cleanliness, etc.”

Now Honors will face an investigation ordered by Adm. John Harvey, the four-star head of the Navy’s Fleet Forces Command. And with Honors repeatedly insisting through that videos that even his commanding officers were unaware of the content, does that mean his bosses are off the hook? Not necessarily. Being ignorant of your underlings’ actions doesn’t mean you’re innocent. And if the videos really were broadcast to the Enterprise’s 6,000 sailors, it seems nearly impossible Honors’ higher ups were in the dark.

      I believe this video is not anti-gay. I wrote a comment about it in response to another comment from a navy veteran who supported Capt. Honors: Thank you! [to the navy veteran] I’m a licensed psychologi­st and think the video is a harmless way of having some fun. I was never in the service, let alone on a ship for months at a time, and appreciate comments from people who do have the experience­. Captain Honors seems like a guy who is HUMAN and has a sense of humor. C’mon people–guy­s can poke fun like this video without having any mean or harmful intention. This guy is a mensch, in my opinion–h­e sure beats my stereotype of some uptight Capt. Bligh! I wonder if Bill Shatner (another Enterprise captain…­duh!) has seen this video? I honestly believe he’d be proud. :) President Obama–ple­ase keep Captain Honors at his post!

      After the first week there is a sense of loneliness like no other and each shipmate has to become a close friend. The only way to maintain any sense of sanity is to make fun of it. And that’s all I gotta say about that.

      To Joe– I know a number of gay guys who are good friends of mine and with each other and call each other fags. Couldn’t you tell those guys in the vid liked each other enough to feel ok to say those things? And hear that nobody then said anything as a put-down about gays? (as in “Hey, I’m no fucking fag!”) On the contrary, the guy on the right said “don’t screw with me” and referred to the guy who said fag that he had something like the smoothest hand when they brought up masturbation…a great come-back, I think.

      whats the best part about all the complaints saying he shouldn’t be in command of a ship and shouldn’t be trusted to be fair is crap, between the videos making and now he had commanded another ship the USS MT Whitney and served with distinction. While there he commanded the ship on numerous missions, including a Humanitarian Aid Mission to The Republic of Georgia. He is very upfront about his beliefs, which is a nice change from other Captains i have sailed under who say one thing but do another. When you went before the Old Man you knew exactly were you stood. He was Fair to all, but if you messed up he held you accountable for your actions. These videos are like all the other videos servicemen make while out to sea or deployed, they are an attempt at humor to make a long voyage away from home slightly less miserable. And were not meant to be mean spirited or heartless.

      I have read comments from people at other websites — either they served or were spouses of others who served under Honors–they were very supportive without any hint of homophobia or gay bashing. The emphasized how the videos were big morale boosters and that Honors was able to relate to all levels of the crew–a rare and fine thing in a leader! I still view the video as a humorous way of *realistically* portraying some things on shipboard–not living in denial about people sharing showers, masturbating, etc. Playfulness shows real self-confidence, I believe. Enough from me.

      Hey #21….you just don’t get it. Honors is an officer in the United States Navy. An officer is a member of an armed force or in some cases uniformed service who holds a position of authority. Commissioned officers derive authority directly from a sovereign power and, as such, hold a commission charging them with the duties and responsibilities of a specific office or position. Producing these type of videos, just to humor the troops and build morale….is not only vulgar, but truly a disgrace to all the fine military men and women who serve in our armed forces. I guess next would think it appropriate and fun for our President to make a video on the same level.

      I don’t find the video offensive. I find it silly and lacking polished editing skills. If there are insults in the video they are aimed lightly at gay males not necessarily towards lesbian. They seem to be OK with girl-girl activities. Nonetheless, the video shows that our military needs to do more physical fitness and less junk food eating.
      There should be no waste of time and resources on an investigation. What’s to investigate. He should put disclaimers in his videos next time if there is a next time.

Unless there is something more on these videos or someone has a serious complaint that’s substantiated, they should let this one go. Just give current and future XO’s a heads up that this isn’t a good idea at all.

Yet none of this means I want to make someone else suffer because of it. Unless there is more to this story I can’t see giving Honors more than a reprimand, if even that since he reportedly stopped making these when told to.

How the hell could a gay soldier under DADT complain about anti-gay videos being made at taxpayer expense and shown on his/her ship without being tossed out of the military for being gay? Heads DO need to roll, not for this, but for the MANY times the military DID ask and DID investigate gay soldiers without due cause… and then end their careers because they found some evidence that a soldier was gay. The policy was “DON’T ask, Don’t tell.” Yet they often DID ask and DID spy on gay soldiers in order to kick them out.

      You don’t have to be out to sea for 6 months straight to understand: to paraphrase Vladimir Lenin, “you don’t make art without breaking eggs.” It takes some false starts before you produce a decent video, and these guys aren’t professional screen writers or directors.

      Here are a couple of questions for all you out there. 1. Have you ever had a boss, co-worker, or friend act like this? 2. did you laugh, or did you hang them? 3. have you ever met the man personally?
      and now i’ll respond to all these questions myself, yes i served with the guy and when i went to both HS and College we had others just like him. Which is very refreshing when one has a friend who is very upfront with there views, and dont try to sugarcoat them to make them more acceptable and PC. and lets not forgot that all would laugh nearby. so how about everyone get off there HIGH HORSES and stop being hypocrites.
      and #27, yes i know that he was an officer in the Navy, one who i wish was still my CO. and if the president would make a video i would probably watch it and laugh. and how do we know the president has never done something like this before.

      The videos were made five years ago, and the folks complaining just come forward in 2010. So they file formal complaints, don’t get anywhere, and then go to the press when they don’t get their way despite Honors being told to stop the videos, which he does. Their desire to remain anonymous leads me to believe there is more to their bringing this to the press than just to air grievances, especially in light of how long ago these videos were shown…

      (Obviously it’s somewhat inappropriate – we understood that this stuff was acceptable semipublicly among enlisted personnel, but officers weren’t supposed to behave like this except privately amongst themselves and sometimes the watch NCOs. But…it’s hardly scandalous. And it’s extremely gay, in that Navy way where homoeroticism is always thinly veiled by homophobia.)

      1. He was the second in command of the ship
      2. His were broadcast out on the closed circut system on the ship.
      3. he acknowledged that there had been complaints about the vids and mocked the complainers.

      Look, if the guy thought that the crew of the ship needed to be entertained that badly, fine, assign a few folks to put some things together, or make sure that the stock of DVD’s was better, or play a DVD on the system. But using the equipment to broadcast to a captive audience, just seems very self serving and juvinlle for an XO.

      Richard HN, the fact that you say you have “gay” friends who call each other “fags”, doesn’t excuse using the word. It is a derogatory word, always has been and always will be, no matter how you and your “gay” friends try to skew it. People who use it, usually straights, use it for a purpose and they know how it hurts and puts down people. Its the same situation when African-Americans use the equally derogatory “n” word with one another. Its not acceptable. Why is it gays don’t use derogatory words to use against straights? Have you ever wondered why they don’t? Its bad enough young kids in high school are being bullied with words such as this. Its hateful and demeaning. I doubt if this ignoramus would be shouting “fag” if his life were on the line in the field of combat knowing that the person about to save his life were gay.

      To those apologists, what you’re doing is condoning slurs and you become part of the problem against your own people. Absolutely despicable.

If any disciplinary action should be taken because of this it should have happened 4-5 years ago. It’s probably more than what should happen to him, but I expect he’ll be forced to retire after possibly being relieved of command. That’s enough.

      @Ted B. (Charging Rhino): So I guess what you are saying, is that if you have a sense of humor, and are human, you are incapable of being in command? Are you serious? I’d be willing to bet that you have never served your country. I’d be willing to bet that you sit back and wait for opportunities to judge other people without knowing the facts or what it is like to be in a stressful situation, on edge at all times, with the possibility of being killed for your country at any moment, and be completely fine with any glimmer of normalcy and humor. Who are you to even HAVE an opinion? You go serve onboard a ship for 6 months or more, away from land, cooped up in a floating tin can, and maybe you would laugh at anything that is harmless and that you know will not result in you being shot or blown up. How dare you. Shame on you…………….

      GOD CONDEMNS HOMOSEXUALITY! OR DOES EVERYONE FORGET A GREAT FLOOD, AND SODOM AND GAMORA, I’M BETTING GOD HAS’NT!!! ABNORMAL AND DEVIANT TO HUMAN EXISTANCE IS WHAT GAY STANDS FOR!!! HOMOSEXUALS ARE AWARE AND FIGHT AN INNER (SHAME) BATTLE OUT LOUD AGAINST OTHER HUMANS’ WHO DO NOT AND WILL NOT ACCEPT GAY AS A NORMAL CONDITION FOR ANY HUMAN BEING! IMMORAL SEXUAL BEHAVIOR IS AGAINST HUMANITY AND IS AGAINST GOD. I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO SEE OR HEAR OF THEIR DEVIANT CONDITION NOR ANY OTHER NORMAL HUMAN BEING. I PERSONALLY AM OFFENDED SO ARE MILLION’S OF OTHER PEOPLE EVEN NON-RELIGIOUS! I KNOW THESE PEOPLE ARE CONDEMNED FOR CAUSING HOMOSEXUALITY TO BE ACCEPTED (RUINING MORALITY OF THE YOUNG AND WEAK MINDED PEOPLE) PEOPLE LIKE ELLEN WHO PUBLICLY FLAGRANTLY LIE TO EVERYONE ABOUT HOW OK AND ACCEPTABLE HOMOSEXUALITY IS, I BELIEVE EVEN OPRA’S BROADCAST OF PUBLIC GAY SENTIMENT WILL SEAL THE CONDEMNATION OF HER SOUL ALSO. A GAY MOLESTED ME @ 8 I KNOW ITS EVIL SEXUAL PERPETUATION. FREEDOM TO WARN PEOPLE IS WHAT I

      Rob Peterson, your make-believe god doesn’t condemn homosexuality at all, its not written anywhere in the old or new testaments. You take that dumbass Leviticus verse and use it to justify your bigotry. There is NO proof those words were ever written by some “divine” entity. Prove it!

      Before you go on another tirade, why don’t you help clean up the filth in the straight world, the world of female prostitution, adultery, philandering,sex slavery trading (all straight I might add), pimps, straight men impregnating single women out of wedlock, the straight polygamists and those among them who have sex with underage girls, the straight rapists (mostly a straight male phenomenon), straight swingers clubs where married and unmarried couples have sex with each others’ partners, and yes, some even engage in anal sex.

      Get back on your meds, your stupidity and ignorance are more than apparent.

      @ROB PETERSON: Do you blame your heterosexual male neighbor for the guilty rapist sitting in prison for violtating women? You have some nerve judging and blaming all gay men with some tale about you being molested by ONE individual pedophile when you were eight. But you are never going to absorb that concept so sit in your stew.

      To those homosexuals claiming the video is offensive, I say, nothing could be more offensive than the grievous offence inflicted by filthy homosexuals against humankind, reason, common sense, and decency for the last fifty years. Nothing could be more offensive than filthy homosexuals perverting school children and pushing their perversion on peoples faces disguised as human rights. Sodomites can celebrate now for being accepted by sinful human beings, but they will not celebrate after they depart this world and find themselves in front of a Holy and Righteous God who demands perfection though His beloved son Jesus Christ. Homosexuals and those that approve and support them will have one of the most horrific and shocking awakenings, and immediately they will wish they could trade their life of sin, but it will be too late, since they made their choice to forsake God and follow their perversions while on the earth. Consequently, once they departs from the land of the living and they are either cremated or buried six feet under, their spirits will be eternally damned in hell for all the depravities and filthiness they have wallowed in while in the body. And one day soon these AIDS breeders will be isolated from the culture locked up in mental institutions for the deranged, together with those who support and tolerate them.

      @Richard Hn: I tend to agree its not anti-gay. Its stupid in a lot of ways, but not anti-gay. Honestly, i dont give a damn what soldiers do. young adults in a literal life or death situation sitting on top of a floating legitimate military target is stressful. They seemed to be more mocking current events as a whole then anything elsee.

      But this sort of behavior shouldnt be conducted by such an officer. Servicemen, fine. I dont care. But this is literally an issue of controling a vehicle that could singlehandedly destroy almost any city in the world, if it so desired. We CANNOT have that sort of behavior coming from an officer.

      @ewe: People can be such monsters. These bigots live their lives in fear and hatred and anger and with a blown up persecution complex. No sensible person could see gay marraige as a problem. They are so full of hate that they destroy themselves and those around them, and they believe they are right with such unquetioning insanity that they have to ifnd a scapegoat. They cant fathom that their neverending hatred and anger is bad, so it must be those guys who never hurt me and just want equal rights.

      To do one of the rightwings favorite things, I’m going to quote from the founding fathers. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.” To all the rightwing bigots out there: Unalienable means UNALIENABLE. it does mean “Unalienable..Until a certain group who temporarily takes power decides its icky.”

      You LOSE. Get off my property.

      Oh, and heres what I dont get: Arent we made in gods image? Arent christianist supposed to convert us? This failure of a human being is a fake christian. a fraud christian.

      @Henry: You are insane, how can you not see? The thousand years of gods rule? I dont dispute that one bit…Heres the trouble.

      You’re 600 years too late. 400 AD: christianity becomes the fastest growing religion. 1400 AD: Islam overtakes christianity.

      1000 years of gods rule. And you’re late for the party. Now its that after part where you stop being a jackass to us since we’re all made in your god’s image. He MADE us this way, according to your theology. And I noticed theres no FEMALE god…So, by your defintion, God is Gay. Rainbow Jesus FTW.

      @Jason Goblirsch: Actually theres a lot of gay people in the military, right now. Probably on that ship. But you’re a jerk so you wont admit that. The law made it so they couldnt be open. Well, now they can, and now bigots like you are going to do what jerks do: Abandon defending your country because you dont like its citizens. You attack a protected minority, you disregard the issue at hand, and you make veiled threats that suggest you know the full personal history of every man and woman in the entire planet.

      You are an idiot, a bigot, and a jerk. The White Christian Hatemonger Trifecta. And now that DADT has been repealed, you’re also insulting our military and its soldiers. Congradulations, You’re a traitor!
